About this deal

Update: A few months after writing this review, Ohuhu also sent me their set of 48 Pastel Markers to try, which you can read about at the end of this review! The big question is: Are Ohuhu brush markers as good as Copics? Some reviewers claim that they are, but it's worth noting a few things.

EASY BLENDING, NO SMUDGING: Forget about blotchy, uneven coloring. High-quality ink blends seamlessly to achieve beautiful coloring effects, even for beginners. Plus, your artwork will never fade or smudge with time Also, I wish there was a brighter lemon yellow, and more light, bright blues. I also wish there were more Neutral Greys and Warm Greys so that it would be easier to create smooth blended gradients. For instance, there are 3 light Warm Greys and 1 dark one, so it would be nice to have some medium-dark Warm Greys as well to create a smoother transition from light to dark Warm Grey. After using Ohuhu alcohol brush markers and Ohuhu marker paper these past few years, I can say that I am very enthusiastic about Ohuhu as a reliable brand that offers good quality supplies at an affordable price! I'm impressed by their personable customer service as well as their generous offer that if you receive any markers that are dried out or faulty, they'll be happy to send you a new one. Are Ohuhu the best art markers for professionals?That said, it is really handy that you can swap around the Ohuhu brush tips (as mentioned earlier), and now, they also sell replacement tips! ALCOHOL-BASED INK, DRIES INSTANTLY: Never let wet ink ruin your work again! Draw smudge-free thanks to the art pens' fast-drying, alcohol-based formula. Rest easy knowing the non-toxic ink is safe for you and your kids. The closest colors you’ll find to pale skin tones in this set of 120 markers is R18, R19, R20 and R21, which I used to color in this face. For darker skin tones you can try some of the darker yellows, yellow-oranges and browns, but none of them look as natural as skin colors as the 24 colors offered in the aforementioned skin tones set. When I create art with markers I almost always use the brush tip and rarely use the chisel tip. This means that the brush tips get a lot of use, so it's important that they retain their points. For the most part, the Ohuhu brush tips held up well after a few weeks of normal use, but I notice that the colors I used heavily did start to experience some fraying in the tip. Here's an example that shows a blue marker with a perfect pointy tip next to a fuchsia marker that I used a lot, which resulted in a slightly frayed tip. The fraying might not seem like too much of a big deal in this pic, but when you're trying to color in really tight spaces, even a little bit of fraying can make it difficult or impossible to accurately lay down the color precisely where you want it. BRUSH & FINE, DOUBLE-TIP, DOUBLE THE FUN: Widen your artistic horizons with the dual-tip marker design! Choose the brush tip for sweeping, calligraphic strokes or the fine tip for details. The only limit is your imagination.

I’ve included a scan that shows the swatches of the specific colors I used to color in this sun mandala, categorized by which set they came from. As you can see, the darker colors from the 120-set help deepen the lighter colors from the Pastel Set, resulting in a richer blend of colors. Ohuhu sent me their set of 120 alcohol markers, which have dual tips (just like Copic Sketch Markers), with a brush tip at one end and a chisel tip at the other end. FIND COLORS FAST: Don't waste time looking for the right color. Color-coded caps on the art markers keep tips from drying out and help you find any marker in a flash. As a bonus, the free carrying case keeps your markers organized and portable for any coloring adventure! UPDATE: Ohuhu has now created a set of 48 Pastel Markers that fills in some of those color gaps mentioned above! Alcohol Marker Videos The first thing you'll want to do when you receive your markers and pads is to try them out, so dive right in! Open random colors and test them on the paper. Just have fun with it. Once you're ready, you will probably want to organize your markers and make a color chart so that you can easily find the color you're looking for in the future. In fact, I'd say that creating a color chart is essential—especially as you're getting familiar with these markers—to ensure that you're using the color you want. Sometimes the color on the cap doesn't quite match the actual color of the ink. For example, the cap on YR1 is somewhat lighter than the actual ink color.VIBRANT COLORS: The rainbow is at your fingertips - choose from 48 brilliant colors and bring your ideas to life. Whether it's a coloring book or a masterpiece in the making, your artwork is sure to shine with these brush markers EASY BLENDING, NO SMUDGING: Forget about blotchy, uneven coloring. High-quality ink blends seamlessly to achieve beautiful colouring effects with the brush marker pens, even for beginners. Plus, your artwork will never fade or smudge with time. Other than that, this is certainly a wonderful range of colors for beginners - definitely more than enough to get you started!
